Be one of the 60,000 people across all of California in the upcoming 35th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day on September 21st, 2019 from 9 am to noon! Volunteer just 3 hours of your Saturday morning to remove debris from beaches, creeks, rivers, and parks to protect wildlife from harm while taking care of our environment. We have 26 inland and coastal sites across Ventura County! Find one near you at http://www.vccoastcleanup.org/cleanup-sites/!
Last year we collected almost 13,000 pounds of trash and recyclables in Ventura County! You can make even more of a difference by bringing your own supplies, like a used grocery bag or a bucket to put trash in, gloves (gardening/work gloves work great!), and a reusable water bottle, and come on out to lend a hand!
Thank you to our 2019 sponsors for making this event possible!
